Inchie and Journal Page

Hello Everyone  from a wet and windy NE UK coast. Looks a very dreary day outside today so maybe I will catch-up with some H------K at last. Hope it is better where you are that you enjoy your day. Thank you for your visit.

At Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is Dolphin

Not sure this looks like a dolphin as they usually look quite happy chappies. Maybe I will draw a smile on it.

Art Journal Journey have Nature's Wonders for this month and everyone is doing wonderful pages with lots of ideas. We are inspired by Susi , Valerie and Gill their host for this challenge.


I dug out another of my photographs that I took while waiting for a train. The little birds must have just emerge from the nest in a tree above the station wall and their mum or dad were doing a lot of chirping and trying to get them to fly. I would have stayed but the trains along that line don't come very often so we had to leave them to their lesson.

Have a good day all whatever you have planned

Love Chrissie xx

You're opening 'keep smiling' made me chuckle Chrissie - just what we need on a grey and breezy day, but summer is due back again sometime this week I believe :) hopefully ok for end of week as we have our annual air show here on Thurs and Friday.
A fab inchie as always - 'Flipper' looks happy.
I adore your AJJ piece of course, great quote and really love your fantastic photo... hard to work out size, but what are they? are they wrens?
Have a great day with the H....K thanks for the reminder, guess I should be doing some too :(

Nice dolphin. It definitely looks like one, even without its smile. And those little birdies looks so helpless and sweet. I like how you used them on a page. :) Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

The bird photo is adorable Chrissie, love the fluffy feathers, I'm sure they would learn how to fly quite quickly being so close to the station and possibly quite a noisy place. Loved the dolphin and he does sort of have a secret smile.

Dolphins should be easier to draw I think! Yours looks very much like a dolphin though. We have so few wet and dreary days here in Arizona that we all get excited and happy when we do :)

Zoe Sanderson said...

I always love seeing what your inchie is, and your dolphin is adorable, regardless whether it's smiling or not.

I was blown away (BLOWN AWAY) by that AJJ entry with the adorable baby birds and the quote you chose to accompany it. You have no idea how much I like the entire entry. It's awesome, right down to the digital frame around the baby birds.

Well, I think your dolphin looks happy - it's in the leaping! And the birds are adorable - hope they managed to take off eventually.

Thanks for sharing your goodies. The birdies are adorable. Your artwork and thoughts made me smile. But, then, I'm always smiling, so people must be very busy wondering....they might be disappointed in the truth?! Sending warmth and sunshine your way, Cheryl
